    Today’s the day that ‘free’ doctors visits kick in for kids under 13, not all medical practices are signed up with the Government to provide the free services to under 13’s so it is advisable to make sure Your one is befor the kids need to go….

    Another Dickensian disease makes an unwelcome comeback in New Zealand – rickets. Another disease associated with poverty. This was a common sight in depression ravaged 20th century Europe. It should not be part of our so-called 21st century rock star economy . What is National going to do about it, other than continuing to blame the poor for their own misery?

      @Mike the Lefty you say the following –

      “What is National going to do about it, other than continuing to blame the poor for their own misery?”

      And Labour.

      Don’t forget when the incompetence, lies and treason are exposed, NatzKEY always resorts to blaming Labour. A sure sign of failure!

      How do we rid ourselves of this corrupt, self serving, lying, crooked stagnating putrid pile of filth, disguised as government, in particular its traitorous leader, FJK? It’s getting to the point of breaking NZ completely, both economically and socially!

    • Rickets in babies can cause bone lesions, and bones so weakened they can fracture with normal handling. When babies get these kinds of symptoms, their parents are accused of child abuse, in order to cover the government’s arse, and reinforce the idea that child poverty is an individual failure, not a systemic failure:

    The livestock carrier Nada has reached Mexico, according to vessel tracking website Marine Traffic…
    …Marine Traffic indicates the ship is currently berthed in the port of  Mazatlan, in the province of Durango…
    http://i.stuff.co.nz/business/farming/agribusiness/69798842/Nada-livestock-in-Mexico-website

    *Sigh* Geography has flown out the window and the Stuff reporter hasn’t done basic research.

    Mazatlan is in the state of Sinaloa. Durango is not a province (it is a state) and it is inland and has no coastline. The sheep may well end up in Durango (it is a Mexican state with a large pastoral presence), but unless that ship has the longest gangplank in the history of mankind, these sheep will not be unloaded directly from ship to farm.

    Sorry Pat Deavoll, reporter for Stuff.co.nz, but there is no excuse for making this mistake. A quick look at an online map would have given you a bit more credibility.

    “Another Dickensian disease makes an unwelcome comeback in New Zealand – frustrated anger. Another disease associated with poverty. This was a common sight in depression ravaged 20th century Europe. It should not be part of our so-called 21st century rock star economy . What is National going to do about it, other than continuing to blame the poor for their own misery?”

    also true.

  6. Blake says:

    Someone we know well was recently royally screwed by ACC and there was manipulation and lies involved in order to not judge on a lump sum payout that was just and fair. MANY walk away from their dealings with ACC feeling RE-TRAUMATIZED; stressed out AND TREATED POORLY.

    I suggest someone do a piece on those who have been treated unfairly by ACC and the fact that dis-entitlement and ageism and using lies and pre-existing conditions are their priority to save money and limit payouts.

    There is a massive systemic fairly within the ACC culture and not much changes with them from one year to the next.
    ” Profit before People ” yet again and they are a corporation investing in money making ventures. Obviously, ACC helps many people as well but there is an ugly and secret side to ACC that many are unaware of.
